Le cul entre les deux chaises

An American Spaniard in France or: How I Learned to Make an Ass of Myself in Three Cultures

Mind the (language) gap

I just came across this pretty great video of Mark Bittman, American food guy and author of the indispensable How to Cook Everything, and Ferran Adrià, Catalan super-chef and the man responsible for the recent molecular gastronomy trend in modern cooking.

Bittman doesn’t speak Spanish (or Catalan, obviously); Adrià doesn’t speak English (why the hell would he?). How do they communicate? In French, of course, the language of love and of food.

If the embed from the NYT doesn’t come through, you can watch it here.
